Need To Keep Your Hearing Aids Clean Properly at Home? - General Hearing Aid Cleaning Tips

Hearing Aid

For every valuable tool you own, there certainly must be a particular degree of maintenance to ensure its effectiveness or longevity is maintained. Be it that smartphone, your car, career or even that reputation you closely guard, maintenance is part and parcel of how you protect it.


Your hearing aids aren’t any different, and it’s your responsibility to keep them tidy and functional. It isn’t something you expect along with that “hearing aids for sale” offer; that’s for sure. Keeping them clean is mandatory, it doesn’t matter whether you do it alone or with the assistance of an audiologist.

Furthermore, the more you do it, the longer it will maintain its peak performance. Keep them clean, and earwax will never accumulate enough to cause that annoying muffled sound (whistling). Also, the receiver will serve its purpose for longer. 

Need to rid it off ear wax, water or any other dirt inside the hearing aid?

Never let ear wax damage the functioning and effectiveness of your hearing aids. It destroys a massive amount of them; about 60% of them, especially when the tiny solid particles gain their way into the most critical parts of the hearing aid.

Another worse component is water - even a little exposure to water is sure to damage it. Any form of humidity, condensation or perspiration isn’t good either. You need to ensure not even a single drip is exposed to it.

With that said, follow these tips of keeping your hearing aids clean:

First, choose the right hearing aid cleaning tools

You need hearing aid dehumidifiers, wax pick and brush and disinfectants that are specifically meant for this job. You will need a kit; something like a 5-in-1 Hearing Aid Cleaner Kit that has everything required to regularly clean hearing aids at home.

In most cases, whoever posts that “hearing aids for sale” ad has these kits, although it’s always wise to add some more like disinfectants. But it is strictly advisable that you use no chemicals or any form of alcohol when cleaning them.

Practice good habits with your hearing aids

This includes never putting them on when you are taking a shower, even when you are cleaning your face. Also, don’t forget to clean them daily, mainly before bedtime or early in the morning when the wax has dried off and is removable with ease. Essentially, ensure that the aids have an adequate amount of time to air out before you put them on.

Don’t just focus on the hearing aids prices alone!

Deeper and more profound cleaning, especially on custom (ITE, ITC, CIC, IIC) hearing aids South Africa demands lots of caution. A complete kit often has the right tools for this purpose, although you’ll need to deal with the microphone and the speaker ports carefully. If you can’t clean it, however, find an expert to get it cleaned. The same is true with BTE (behind-the-ear) hearing aids and RIC (receiver in-the-ear) hearing aids.
